"Lest We Forget"


Photo Exhibition by Luigi Toscano

Several of Luigi Toscano’s larger-than-life photographs of Holocaust survivors will be on display in Kreeger Lobby at Temple in the weeks surrounding Kristallnacht, from late October through mid-November.

Mr. Toscano, a German-Italian photographer and filmmaker,  spent a year traveling and meeting Holocaust survivors in Germany, the United States, Ukraine, Israel and Russia, giving them the opportunity to share their personal stories, possibly for the last time.

The result was more than 200 portrait photographs, which have been exhibited internationally — including on the National Mall this past April, where Rabbi Lustig spoke at the opening ceremony.
